    Solid company

    I have been working at STERIS

    Pros

    Good people. Making smart acquisitions to serve customers better. Well positioned based on changes occurring in the markets the company operates in.

    Cons

    Opportunity to be more creative and personal in marketing the company. Powerful brand that we currently don't take full advantage of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A strong company culture during times of acquisition, integration makes a big difference. Keep things fresh to get the most out of your talent.

    I worked at STERIS full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work and fantastic products. Leadership usually appears to be I'm touch with what is needed for new products being introduced in the market place. Company values are fantastic "do the right thing". Customers are always first.
    Benefits and compensation are very competitive if not superior.

    Cons

    They have very un-realistic sales goals. They have managers that are not managers but drones who don't have a spine or can't stand up to Managment and tell them what is needed or sales goals that are out of whack. Compensation is fine and competitive and benefits are great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop getting rid of your experienced sales rep when they get to the age of 50. A guy or gal spends there LIFE away from their family on projects, traveling and bringing in a tremendous amount or business for the company only to be let go when the reach the golden age because there was not a big project in their area to carry them through. You have let go some real talent. Some have been lucky enough to go find Job with your competition. You sit in your big offices looking at your spread sheets and cutting some real good folks just because your managers don't have the balls to stand up and say NO! Certainly if your looking for a good job you can put your life into and then plan on retiring there KEEP looking because they will cut your job and hire a fresh out of college dude they can hire for less.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at STERIS as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay a lot of attention to culture fit in their hiring - there's a lot of really nice people there, with a notable absence of "jerks"

    Cons

    They're heavily regulated (FDA, OFCCP) so things can move slow at times and a lot of your day to day is governed by a lot of reporting and waiting for permission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You could do more to build a more embraceable company culture - it's a given that the foundation of the culture is sterilizing the world, but bring more human personalities into the mix.

    Pros

    Name brand recognition, good manufacturing practices, good technical support great field service.

    Cons

    Sales goals are quite often unrealistic based on market trends and economic upheavals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set sales goals more realistically by using forecasts provided by the field reps and verify facts by checking with customers.

    I have been working at STERIS full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I can say that I absolutely love my co-workers and the job is pretty decent when it comes to PTO,etc. For this to be my first job in my field straight out of college I wasn't expecting a glorious salary. However, I know that the skills that I can gain here will be beneficial when it comes to me entering the job market again somewhere down the line.

    Cons

    I would've loved to reach 40k starting but that's not the case here. Unfortunately many of my co-workers are jumping on the first flight out of this place to places where there is less of a salary cap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love my direct manager! She really works hard in your regard to get things done. Upper management should be a little more organized when it comes to training procedures for new employees. Mine was a little all over the place.

    I have been working at STERIS full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable industry. Long term employees. 401k matching is about standard, consistent medical/dental benefits. We have been able to keep the same practitioners of the last few years.

    Cons

    Low annual increases. Flat organization, little room for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be an ideal job if there were room for advancement

    Pros

    Great benefits, the company offers a growth program that employees can follow and they are large supporters of career development within the company. STERIS is an industry leader in the medical field and working for a company like that is something to be proud of.

    Cons

    Similar to many other corporations, meeting quotas and getting reports in on time are of great importance. The environment between employees is friendly but there's always a competitive atmosphere since internal hiring plays a large role.
